AutoDVT

Digital Training & AI-Guidance for DVT Exams

AutoDVT enables any healthcare professional to learn and perform Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) scan at the point of care. It uses artificial intelligence to guide the user through the current gold-standard procedure, a full-leg ultrasound examination.

What is DVT

Deep Vein Thrombosis is when a clot forms within a deep vein in the body. This can be potentially fatal if parts of the clot breaks off, travels through the body and becomes lodged in the lungs.

The Problem

While DVT and Pulmonary Embolism (PE) combined are the number one cause of preventable hospital death, the current diagnostic pathway is slow and inefficient. Patients often wait hours or days for test results. During this time, clots can become dislodged and travel towards the lungs.

AI Solution

ThinkSono enables any healthcare professional to collect DVT exam data, vastly improving access to care and patient outcomes. An AutoDVT exam takes between 5 and 15 minutes using only a handheld device and a mobile phone.

Report

Physicians and supervisors can quickly evaluate training exams and real clinical studies via automated templates and digital communication features. Spend less time on documentation, and more time caring for patients.

Upload

Upload the collected exam data to the ThinkSono Dashboard for rapid interpretation by a qualified medical professional. Securely transfer data from to 3rd party systems such as PACS and EMR to facilitate documentation and billing compliance.

Testimonials

DVT is a significant problem for the NHS. Not only from a financial perspective, but also a clinical perspective…Pathways for DVT is consequently very time consuming because the patient has to be sent to radiology for the performance of the scan. Enabling nurses, GP’s and other non-specialists to diagnose DVT accurately at the point of care would be extremely useful for the NHS and much more convenient for patients.

Consultant Emergency Physician at Guy’s and St Thomas Hospital, London.

The burden of deep vein thrombosis is significant for the National Health Service and one particular problem is that a DVT is suspected much more often than it is found. Potential for non-experts to perform diagnostic ultrasound could dramatically improves DVT diagnostic pathways.

Dr David Keeling BSc MD FRCP FRCPath

Consultant Haematologist at Oxford University Hospital

I’m excited about this technology and can see many applications for it. For example, rehab units and nursing homes frequently have multiple patients who need venous studies. Their solution is seldom efficient, and I could see every facility like this having the system so they can check their patients whenever they want.
